Watercolor is a gorgeous, versatile medium for any artist. Armed with just watercolor pans or tubes, water and a brush, you can create quick, layered sketches for bigger paintings or make full ink and wash illustrations in a sketchbook. Watercolors blend and layer beautifully, capturing light and motion. They’re great for much more than just traditional paintings: use them for calligraphy, sketches on the go, or in coloring books.
